Brewery in Norilsk opened simultaneously with bakery

June 27, 2023

The Norilsk beer production began back in 1944, when a fermentation workshop, as it was then called, was opened.

#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. The foamy drink was then produced by barrels, and only a small part was poured into glass bottles.

In addition to beer, they also prepared pruno (braga) and vitamin kvass, the same one that fought scurvy. And soon carbonated soft drinks, syrups and fruit drinks were added to the assortment.

In those years, the former power plant building near the Square lake in the current Old town was converted into a brewery.

And only in 1965 it moved to the Laureatov street area, to the building of the boiler house of the former brick and concrete products factory.

By this time, Norilsk brewed its own Zhigulevskoye, as well as Moskovskoye, Velvet, Rizhskoye, and Ukrainskoye beer.

In summer, beer was sold right on the streets: on tap from barrels and vending machines for refreshing drinks. On holidays, tanks with refreshing drinks stood on the city main squares.

In the last issue of the photo project History Spot, we wrote that in honor of the 50th anniversary of the October Revolution, they wanted to name a completely different street in Norilsk.
